Sigh… the word itself makes me smile.

In our house, Lt. Dan is usually the head chef for breakfast. I’m in such a daze in the morning, an apple will subside, but not for Dan. He wants a full scale breakfast of eggs, bacon, hash browns, and pancakes.

Usually he settles for a self-made scrambled egg bowl topped with guacamole, salsa and cilantro. However, on the weekends I appease him by making a big hearty breakfast fit for a king.

I love making pancakes, but can’t always handle the sugary syrup first thing in the morning. That’s where savory pancakes come in.

Who says pancakes have to be sweet?  What better complement to cheesy scrambled eggs and crispy strips of bacon than a stack of buttery savory corn cakes?

Today’s savory corn cakes are accompanied by a cool avocado cream made with Wholly Guacamole. Have you tried this stuff? So. Good.

Wholly Guacamole makes the absolute best prepackaged guacamole, from fresh hass avocados and all natural ingredients. They never add preservatives to keep the guacamole from browning. Instead they use a special high pressure packaging process so the guacamole stays airtight.

I love homemade guacamole, but Wholly Guacamole is so fresh and tasty, and so convenient to keep around, it almost defeats the purpose.

How to Make Savory Lime Corn Cakes with Avocado Cream | #avocado #breakfast #guacamole #savory

I added fresh lime zest to the corn cake batter to accentuate the corn flavor (like in good quality tortilla chips.) Then I mixed Wholly Guacamole with sour cream to make a cool savory avocado cream sauce to top the corn cakes.

This is such a simple, but divine combination.

I could eat these every single day… Suddenly I feel inspired to make breakfast more than once a week!

    I generally use guacamole in very traditional ways – with chips, on tacos, fajitas, or sopes. I like it on rice cakes, too.
